Ever have one of those days where you are etching out a bunch of PCB's and as you're etching one...you ask yourself...

Da'fuq is dis one!???! :hmmm: :scratch: :oops:
Annnnd of course I can't post a piccie on this portion of the forum..

What I CAN tell you is the layout is 4 to a page. It looks like an original type layout with curves instead of angles.

And it looks like its a wah , but 3 op-amps??

Hehe!

I was round talking to a buddy of mine in his hobby shack recently and he came across a hand drawn PCB from about 40 years ago when we worked in the same lab. He was scratching his head wondering what it was so I asked if there was anything written on it. He replied that he never wrote on them but when he examined it with a magnifying glass (he's as blind as a bat) he discovered that it was one of mine with my initials, what it was and even the magazine title + year and month scratched onto the ground plane.

When I got home I looked through my files and found a copy of the magazine article. I bet I have an identical board somewhere, also not built up.

Yea, I have unfinished projects going back to the early 70s, one day I might get them finished. :ROFL

Good to hear you found what it was.
